Indian Army Chief General Bipin Rawat on Friday said that soldiers must raise their grievances internally rather than putting them up on social media.
Addressing a press conference Rawat referred to BSF jawan’s video who had complained about poor food quality and near starvation situations faced by the troops.
“Whoever has any complaint can tell me directly,” the Army Chief said. Grievance boxes have been placed in Army HQs, whoever has a complaint can submit there, we will address,” he added.
After BSF jawan Tej Bahadur Yadav put up a video on social media complaining about the alleged substandard food that is being given to troops, other personnel have also come forward reporting their plight.
The Army Chief reiterated on using the suggestion and grievance boxes in the Army headquarters for any complaints.
“This press conference, which is held on eve of the Army Day, is very relevant to us, as I would like to reach every jawan through you (media). We are one team and we work as one force to ensure India is secure and peaceful,” he said.
He also stressed on the need to counter the enemy who will try their tactics to destroy India’s secular fabric.
